Friar Laurence sends out Friar john to Mantua v a message for Romeo.The time of work is unclear, but it is not yet evening because Juliet claims that she can come earlier "at evening mass" for she "confession" if Friar Laurence is busy v Paris now (lines 37-38).

Heat 105: Friar Laurence states that the drug will make her sleep for "two and also forty hours" (almost two days). Shakespeare probably included this extra time so the Romeo would have actually a believable quantity of time to obtain the message and also come back from Mantua. Most productions do it it seems to be ~ shorter.IV : iiTuesdayEarly eveningLord Capulet is arranging a huge wedding celebration. Juliet returns from see Friar Laurence and also pretends to be cooperating.Line 39: Lady Capulet says, ""Tis now close to night." over there is a bit of confusion around the job in this scene. Both mr Capulet and Juliet say the the wedding is tomorrow (Wednesday). Lady Capulet corrects them and says that it is on Thursday, but Lord Capulet continues to say "tomorrow" (lines 24, 35, 36, 37, 46). This could be plan to it is in a little bit of comedy around Lord Capulet continually gaining the work wrong in his rush to prepare the wedding, but Juliet makes the mistake too (line 35). Some human being explain the discrepancy by arguing that mr Capulet has actually suddenly made decision to move the wedding up a job so that Juliet won"t have time to change her mental again. Therefore Lady Capulet is saying with him around the decision, not correcting him. Let"s i think it"s the (otherwise, you can push the complying with scenes earlier a day).IV : iiiTuesdayEveningJuliet drinks the drug.Juliet double mentions that the wedding is morning (lines 8 and also 22). Juliet is acquisition the drug a day early which means that the info in Friar Laurence"s letter come Romeo is now wrong.

Romeo buys poison from the Apothecary.No time of day is mentioned, but the scene starts with Romeo speaking about a dream the he had, so it could still it is in morning. Sufficient time has passed since the last scene for Balthasar to have actually arrived indigenous Verona after having actually visited Juliet"s tomb. The distance between the urban is 25 mile (40 km). A horse have the right to comfortably take trip at 6 miles per hour, back racehorses can reach 30 mph for brief distances. Therefore the trip could take fewer 보다 5 hours. Line 26: Romeo tells Balthasar that "I will hence tonight." line 34: Romeo says, "Juliet, I will certainly lie v thee tonight", which also indicates the the trip have to take much less than a day. He most likely plans to leave at an early stage in the evening and expects to arrive really late in ~ night.V : iiThursdayEveningFriar Laurence learns the Friar john was can not to deliver the article to Romeo. Friar Laurence writes an additional letter come Romeo and also leaves because that the crypt to accomplish Juliet when she wakes.Friar Laurence probably figured out what taken place when that heard the news the Juliet"s "death" a day early. Line 25: Friar Laurence says, "Within this three hours will same Juliet wake." If Juliet take it the medicine late Tuesday night, and it lasts because that forty-two hours, it must now be at an early stage Thursday evening.V : iiiThursday with FridayLate evening through beforehand morningParis and also a servant come at Juliet"s tomb. Romeo and Balthasar arrive. Romeo provides Balthasar a letter (his suicide note) and also sends him away. Paris confronts Romeo, and Romeo kills him. The servant goes to summon the watchmen.

We discover that Lady Montague died of grief earlier this evening because of Romeo"s banishment. Friar Laurence, Balthasar, and the servant define what happened. The Prince scolds lord Capulet and Lord Montague, who finally end their feud.As in action I, scene v, several hrs take place during this step (night through dawn). Many productions will delete plenty of of this events. There are many references come night and also torches. Lines 14-17: Paris states twice that he will certainly visit Juliet"s tomb "nightly". Line 130: Balthasar speak Friar Laurence that Romeo has been inside the tomb for "Full fifty percent an hour." line 176: the Watchman states that Juliet has been lying here for "two days".
